Harlem Wizards coming to Simsbury!
Last year we hosted the Harlem Wizards at Simsbury High School and had a great night for Simsbury Basketball.  The event ended up selling out with 550 tickets sold.  This year we are opening up 50 more seats...but we expect to sell out again.  The game will be playing on MLK day (January 20, 2020).  The doors will open at 3:00 PM and the game will be at 4:00.  We moved the game to this day so we could get an earlier start time and hopefully include more of our younger players!
 
The Wizards will once again play against a collection of Simsbury High School and Youth Basketball Coaches called 'The Simsbury All Stars'.  Ticket purchase options are:
 
$20 - general admission
$40 - courtside plus (includes meet and greet with wizards, seats in the front row at mid court, and plenty of in game interaction with the wizards)
 
 
Below is a link where you can purchase tickets if interested.  Hope to see many of you at the game, let's make this another great night for Simsbury Basketball!!

Club Information

Introduction

The Simsbury Travel Basketball Club provides an organized youth basketball program for Simsbury residents in grades 4 through 8. Teams compete against teams from towns in the Hartford, CT area with most games scheduled for Saturdays and Sundays. Registration for tryouts begins in September. Tryouts are in October. Practices begin in November. Games begin in December and continue into late February/early March. (all dates are approximate)

Philosophy

  • Teach players the basic skills of basketball
  • Build confidence in each player and to bring out their individual talent for the game
  • Teach sportsmanship and fair play through a team sport
  • Provide an opportunity for each player to participate and have fun
  • Enforce team concepts and to enhance knowledge of the sport
  • Teach players the responsibility of each team member to try their best and to encourage their teammates to do the same
  • Prepare players for a higher level of competition and commitment to continue to play the sport at the next level.

  • Minimum playing time guarantees

Schedule:

Check the Weekly Schedule menu item on the left for weekly games and practice times.  During the season, teams typically practice twice a week on weeknights for 90 minutes.  Games are usually on weekends.  Our teams play in the CBTBL, CGBL and NCC leagues. Click the LEAGUES tab on the left column for league websites.

Tryouts:

More information about Simsbury Travel Basketball  Expectations and Tryouts can be found in the Parents tab. Online Registration for tryouts opens up in August, tryouts take place in October.  There is no fee to try out. 

Coaches:

All STBC Coaches must pass a background check, take the CDC Concussion training course and review the CDC information on staph infections for athletes.

Cost:

The cost to participate on a team for the upcoming season has not been determined yet. Last year it was $325 per player, we expect the cost will be similar this season. Costs include gym rental & custodial fees, game officials, league fees, website fees and team equipment.  The fee does not include the cost of a uniform - approximately $75. Individual teams may choose to participate in activities that could require additional costs.
